Pointe-à-Callière’s flagship event takes you to the heart of New France

Pointe-à-Callière’s Public Market returns in its original format this year—taking place entirely in person! This impressive re-enactment, recreating the atmosphere of a market day in Montréal under the French Regime, is brought to life by a cast of authentic characters who used to frequent the weekly gathering, along with artists and musicians. On the street running alongside the Museum, as well as in Place Royale and Place D’Youville, browse the market stalls manned by merchants and artisans, learn about traditional Indigenous know-how, or attend workshops about navigation in New France. Everything takes place in a festive ambiance that will carry you back to the 18th century, in the heart of Old Montréal!
